Check DCT break
Hi guys. I recently bought √* 2016 nc750x dct and im new on the forum.
To lubricate my chain I lift the wheel from the ground, turn the wheel with one hand and spray the lubricant while the wheel is turning. I did it 3 time up to now. Once only did the wheel turn freely. The two other times, there was resistance while turning the wheel and it was difficult to turn. Feels like some gears are turning in the transmission. Of course the bike was not running and in neutral.
Any ideas how to always have the wheel turn freely?

Might have a couple tight (slightly kinked) links.
You turned off your bike while it was in gear. Turn the key to the on position and you’ll hear it click into neutral no need to start the engine, the wheel will now turn freely. I was stumped by this one for a while too.
Even though the tranny is supposed to go to N on restart, I always punch N before I turn it OFF just to help the battery a little bit. :-)
The OP did say that the bike was in neutral so therefore it has to be something else. The handbrake suggestion is a highly likely culprit but the rear brake might also be binding. Perhaps push the caliper piston back a little and see if that alleviates. Of course don't forget to pump the pedal again to avoid a shock at the first bend when riding

Just to emphasize, the owner's manual says to put it in neutral before stopping the engine.
You were right! Thanks ŗ lot!
